I have been working at PAREXEL full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Flexible work schedules
Most employees work from home
401k & company match
Autonomy, self-reliance, self-sufficiency
Excellent pay if you negotiate up front for it
Adequate benefits
Company likes to promote from within and I was told there is ample growth opportunities if you work HARD!

Cons

Global organization which can easily make you feel like just another number
Training is very inadequate across the majority of departments
Direction comes from all across the board so you will always wonder “Who is my Manager?”
Overworked staff + burnout = high turnover
Bureaucratic
Political games
Silo Mentality

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The higher ups need to follow through with the suggestions and ideas of the worker bees that are doing the work each day. We know what we are talking about better than you do because you don’t actually do the work. Also quickly reward and promote employees that work HARD. Get rid of (FIRE) those that are just dead weight and only want to collect a paycheck. You know who they are...

Offer better training opportunities to those that want to be promoted.

    Pros

    PAREXEL is growing and there is ample opportunity for employees who perform well to grow their careers for many years to come. What I enjoy most about PAREXEL is the support of Line Managers and Senior Management. These are realistic and supportive mentors. Our team works hard but we enjoy our work and our staff. I heard this message during the interview process and my expectations have since been met. I look forward to advancing my career at PAREXEL. Great group to work with.

    Cons

    PAREXEL is technology rich. I see this as a positive after having worked for employers who do not invest much in technology but those that struggle with technology will not be successful in this environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the open lines of communication.
